Poem About My Invisible Struggles, Diseases, and PAIN
My Invisible Struggles, Diseases, and PAIN
I feel like crying because
inside I feel like I’m dying…
This is NOT how I want to feel
Why oh why won’t my body HEAL??
My joints and muscles cry out in pain so SEVERE
I really don’t know if I’ll be here next YEAR…
How can I hurt inside so BAD
It scares me and it makes me MAD…
Let me try to explain this awful INVISIBLE (inside) pain
It’s running through EVERY VEIN…
It hurts like someone BEAT me up and left bruises that hurt…
But there are NONE…
And it feels like I’m coming down with the FLU
God, oh just let me have it & these feelings be through!
“I HATE HOW I FEEL”
It’s so hard to deal.. “OH” this pain is “REAL”
I put on a fake smile and say “I’m OKAY”
To look at me someone one would say she looks “FINE TO ME”
Oh God, if that could ONLY BE!!!
So I try to stay happy, holding out HOPE
That someday I will awake and feel “GREAT”
If only for a day…Oh what a JOY that would be
To be PAIN FREE
Why can’t it be?
